Hackers Are Vigilantes, Cybersecurity Expert Says

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Alan Paller is the founder of cybersecurity training school SANS.

He argues that internet trolls and hackers are ruining the internet for everyone else and that people like Andrew Auernheimer should go to prison. 

"It's important that we prosecute the hacktivists because they create a model for chaos on the internet and a model that says it's OK to commit crimes," Paller told New Tech City host Manoush Zomorodi.
